Looking to ease a pain? Need a kink worked out? Our clients usually share with us any areas of pain or discomfort that they want to feel relief from and we go from there. All our massages are tailored to your needs and likes. Some people want a full body massage, while others find the greatest relief in concentrating on their back and neck. It is your time, so you can pick what you like. Book your massage now!

This depends on the type of massage and the depth of the strokes. A light, relaxing massage that doesn't probe very deep into the muscles, shouldn't hurt. With that being said, there is a 'feels good' hurt and an 'ouch, stop it' hurt. A good massage, even a really deep tissue massage, should always stay in the 'feels good' hurt range. Pain can be an indication that the muscle is possibly injured or inflamed and pressure should be adjusted. Also, pain can cause you to tighten up and negate the relaxing effects of the massage. The most effective and deepest massage always works with your body's natural response, not against it.
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience a significant decrease from long-term aches and pains. Many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days.
If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore for a day or two - much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub can ease this soreness.
Most importantly of all, after your session you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body's tissues hydrated and healthy. This is why we offer you a bottle of water at the end of your session.
Well, it varies from person to person. If you are just looking for some occasional relaxation, then a session every 3-6 weeks may be fine for you.
However, if you are looking to address a specific condition, then it is recommended to go more frequently at first and then slowly taper down to a maintenance schedule. Sometimes more frequent 30-minute sessions can be effective until your goals are met and a maintenance schedule is in place.
Frequency of sessions should be discussed with your massage therapist after your treatment when he/she has a better hands-on understanding of your particular muscular issues.
Although there is no minimum age as such, we recommend that anyone under 16 should receive consent from an adult who has parental rights. That person should be in the room while the individual is receiving the massage. This is in order to safeguard not only the child, but myself as a therapist.
